One Trial Will Convince You

Hayti, Mi
Last week we told in our news col
young negro bucks upon two white
limns of an attempt of rape by two
girls near town.
Among other things we stated:

We hasten to take the first oppor
tunity to state that the writer of the
above paragraph little dreamed that
the maximum punishment of the
Missouri law for such a crime was
but a short course of board, clothes
and education at the expense of the
tax-payers of the State provided
the guilty parties are under eighteen
years of age, as the two brutes in
question claim to be. W; repent
we little dreamed that such a trav
esty of justice could ba enacted in
the name of the law of this State.
But it appears such is the fact, and
that being the case, none of the
county and State officials can be
criticised. They did not make the
law and their duty obligates them
to eni'orre it as it is written in the
Judge McCarty, we are informed,
took particular personal pains to
investigate the ago of the two black
young bucks, and was convinced
that neither had reached his eight
eenth year. Nothing, therefore,
could be done, we are told, but tc
turn the guilty scoundrels over tc

Such a law is a farce and a shame
to this great State. Here is an

be. Clothes and board and training
at the expense of the State, however,
Is not punishment. In such cases
such an .application of the law is
really nothing more nor less than a
reward offered by the State to black
brutes to "lay hands upon white
women's throats' provided the
said brutes are under eighteen years
of age.
The page of the Missouri Statutes
containing such a law ought to be
torn out and burned and the abbes
scattered to the four winds. If the
revision of our statutes now in the
course of development does not an
nihilate this law, we advise that our
next representative, who should be
Mr. Doerner, himself, introduce a
measure for Its immediate repeal

zens of this State, when they come
to understand, will not stand for
such abuse of justice as the alleged
